Budding Philanthropists

How Can I Become a Budding Philanthropist?


While a child can become a Budding Philanthropist by donating any amount, Budding Philanthropists provides a child with a special tzedakah box with a first-time donation of $18 or more to the CJA.

Special Events Just For You


It’s never too early to get your children involved in making our community a better place! By becoming a Budding Philanthropist, donors under the age of 18 and their families can participate in acts of tzedakah (charity) and tikkun olam (repairing the world) together. Throughout the year, we host a variety of engaging events that are exclusive to our young donors, demonstrating that you can have a meaningful impact on your community – no matter your age!

Counting Your Tzedakah 


You don’t have to wait until the tzedakah box is full! Bring your child to the Federation office to make their donation in person. Together, we will count their tzedakah and explain how your child’s donation will help people in the Jewish community at home and around the world. Each of us has a role to play in building our community. If we all do our share, our community will continue to have a bright future!


If you do not have time to come to the Jewish Federation of Winnipeg’s office, don’t worry! Print off the Budding Philanthropist counting sheet and do it from home!
